My husband and I recently had stayed at the Catalina Canyon Hotel for our first anniversary. Although the hotel is going through renovations it was still a very enjoyable stay! We were very close to the golf course and a few hiking trails. We were greeted by a welcoming front desk agent and Ophelia the office Manager. I normally don't... More

This hotel desperately needs some decent management. Debris from their on-going remodel in passageways, filthy/ unsecured room to stash luggage while you wait for them to call you to check in (carried my laptop around w/me all day), room NOT serviced by 6pm on 2nd day - had to go find a housekeeper walking by and ask her to come...

I called weeks in advance, spoke to a very nice man named George that stated It shouldn't be a problem to check in early as long as the room was available. The day of the stay I was on the second ferry to arrive on the island from the Catalina express, checked in at 11 to be first in line... More

I booked this hotel for my husband's birthday a few months ago, but then I read some very recent reviews that were not good at all. I did not want our experience with the hotel to ruin our vacation. However, I was very pleased and happy with our stay. We arrived early on the island and were able to register... More

It's a MOTEL. Please do not be fooled, it is not a "resort" by any stretch of the imagination. Paid 200 and was sorry I did not pay another hundred to stay downtown. Hotel needs urgent updating. It's bad for the population of Catalina to have visitors come and get turned off coming here with this bad hotel experience....Also shampoo... More

Booked hotel online and was not informed that the hotel was undergoing renovations outside and inside the rooms. We could not get into our room until after 5pm because the room was not ready. However, when we asked for late check-out the next day, we were informed that we had to leave by 11:30 the latest, or my credit card... More

I was willing to overlook a few things since I knew coming to the hotel they were under renovations, but there were several key components to this stay that made it unsatisfactory. Firstly I had put a comment on my reservation which had never been addressed, and upon check in I was not informed that the water had been shut... More

I stayed at Catalina Canyon Resort last year for $109 a night. The room was decent for the price we paid. So I thought this year we would experience the same thing. When I called on Monday to make the reservation, they told me to call back Tuesday as their computers were down. I confirmed at that time the rooms... More

I booked the hotel on Expedia. I arrived with my wife for a weekend away. We found that the hotel was under massive construction. This was not indicated on Expedia. The managers were rude and unaccommodating. The room flooded on day 2. They moved us to a room that you wouldn't walk on the carpets without shoes. The management did... More
